    Tire question for you all

    I bought a Continental Mt.King 2.4 a few weeks ago and the dang thing does nothing but washes out on turns. What tires are you all running out here on your front? Or, what would you recommend that will work better? Thanks

    Sorry for the stale post people. I didn't realize someone else had already posted on a similiar question.

    I use a MK 2.4 Super Sonic on the front and haven't had any issues with washout. In fact, I trust it more than my old Nevegals. Using a 2.3 Speed King Super Sonic on the rear too. It's just a bit too small for my tastes but the MK 2.4's are back ordered so I had to buy something.

    Maxxis! Minion, High Roller, Advantage, Ignitor, are all good front tires.

    I like the Schwalbe Big Betty 2.4, tracks well and corners great.
    It is........What it is

    You guys run big tires!
    I ran a Specialized Captain Control 2.2 when I rode full suspension.
    Now I ride a hardtail, so I ride a Specialized FastTrack 2.1
    that has plenty of traction for a hardtail.

    for full suspension I'd recomend a Captain Control 2.2
    Maybe the tire you have now at a lower PSI?
